2016 J Block Shiraz

The combination of site, vintage and clonal selection, has produced a wine which epitomises cool climate Shiraz.

A co-ferment of the Shiraz with two percent Roussanne gives a lifted brambly perfume to the 2016 wine. The palate has flesh and structure with lovely definition. This wine will age well for at least 10 years.

Site selection: The shallow soils, free drainage and high elevation of J-Block made this the perfect site for Shiraz vines. The soils include lean granite, loam and clay. North-west facing.

Vintage notes: The warmth of the 2016 vintage in the Yarra Valley produced perfect conditions for our later ripening varieties with harvest around 2 weeks earlier than 2015. The vines achieved ideal ripeness and flavor balance. Yield was 7 tonnes per hectare.
